After a weekend off, the series returned, to High Point, Pennsylvania. The team had a one of its toughest weekends yet, with Alex Martin and Jeremy Martin having some mechanical issues; each losing points, in one of their motos. Cooper Webb was back up on the box, finishing third overall. Aaron Plessinger finished fourth overall, and handled the rough track conditions with ease. Mitchell Harrison had a big crash in practice, but was unshaken in the motos. He finished eleven-twelve, for thirteenth overall.
The third round of the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross series was held at the Thunder Valley Motocross Park, in Colorado. Continuing on with the previous round’s success, the Yamalube Star Racing Yamaha team was able to clinch two of the three podium spots. Alex Martin was easily the fastest man on the track, but he faced adversities in both motos, which only allowed him a third place overall finish. Jeremy Martin went one-three, and finished second overall. Cooper Webb took fifth overall, Harrison was tenth, and Plessinger eleventh.
It was another great weekend for the Yamalube Star Racing Yamaha team at the second round of the Outdoor Nationals, Glen Helen. The team took its first podium sweep, with Alex Martin taking his first career win, Jeremy Martin was second, and Cooper Webb rounded up the podium, in third. Aaron Plessinger finished fifth, and rookie, Mitchell Harrison, seemed to be settling in to the class, as he took his first top ten finish.
The Yamalube Star Racing Yamaha team started off the motocross season with a bang. After such a successful supercross season, the team was back up on the podium, at the first round of the Outdoors, in Sacramento. Alex Martin put on one of his best performances. In the second moto, he finished second, and took second overall. Webb took third overall, Plessinger was fourth, and Jeremy Martin fifth. It was Mitchell Harrison’s pro motocross debut. He took a few spills, which resulted in his overall position, not being a true reflection of his speed on the day.
The final round, and East/West Shootout had finally arrived; along with it came rain, and muddy track conditions. The Yamalube Star Racing Yamaha riders really had their work cut out for them. The tough conditions, in addition to an injury, made it extremely challenging for the West Coast title contender, Cooper Webb, to reclaim the title. Webb pushed through, and managed to get the job done, winning the championship by just one point. Aaron Plessinger, who was second in the points, on the East, had a crash in the main. He thrived racing in the mud, which allowed him to work his way up to fourth. Alex and Jeremy Martin both got stuck in the mud, more than once. Alex finished eighteenth, and Jeremy, fifteenth.
